Not your typical Begian Ale as it is a bit subdued in flavor, but nonetheless an enjoyable beer. A nice thirst quencher.

Bottle. Dark amber beer with a white head that disapears quickly. Somewhat yeasty aroma with a little spice. Thin body that quenches your thirst easily. Thereís a spiciness to it and a mildly sweet backing. Nothing special, but itís enjoyable in itís well-done simplicity.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Copper color, nice head. Simple but enjoyable beer, probably not really the aroma, but better the flavor, with a light maltiness, caramel, light sweetness and a quite strong bitterness.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
I was expecting more, damn. Looks pretty enough with some lively carbonation and frothy head. Nose is somewhat promising--belgian yeastiness tempered by some crystal malt chewiness. Smell hints of peanut butter in the aroma. Flavor is a huge let down; this is a pretty dry and watery beer. A little bit salty and lots of melon flavors. I could dig it as a belgian-style daily drinker, but little else. Note: Just noted some off sourness in this one; don't care for that at all and it accentuates the watery texture.

I didnít realise I didnít rate this beer before. But at last ... here it comes. Clear amber body with an off-white creamy head which is good lacing and mostly lasting. Light bitter initial flavour, and moderately bitter finish. Soft, chalky moutfeel. Watery texture.

Iíve had this both on draft and in the bottle and the draft version was much fresher and quite enjoyable. Overall, a nice session beer, but nothing to seek out. Iím sure its better in Belgium, but enjoyable still.

Some malt flavor/aroma, with a prominent yeast bite. Drinkable, with a little character. Not my favorite Belgian Pale Ale.

07-01-04 drank on 04-28-04: Clear amber with a small bubbled small white head. Grass, light fruits and yeast in the aroma. Medium to full bodied, starts a bit sweet and ends sweeter than that. Yeast taste stays around for a while at the end.
